    man what a ride. I was thinking that up to Ukok was hard... but the 110 was much harder.

    what year and how many km is the 690?

    Definitely, I didn't shoot in many many great places.
    My 950 was slower of others most of time. So some days i didn't have lunch just to go ahead a few kilometers and to have a good long shot.
    And very often I stopped, opened camera and saw just tails around the bend.

    Мужики, снимаю шляпу.

    Интересно что с техникой после стало? С той которая сама вернулась. Как она перенесла такие нагрузи? Есть ли трещины в рамах, что с подвесками, повышенный износ движков, подшипники ступиц и тп? Вообще, что с байками сейчас - отремонтированы и эксплуатируются или проданы/утилизированы?
    Ещё вопрос цены. Сама по себе, какова стоимость такой поездки от двери до двери, не включая расходы на байки и оборудование? Кстати, посмотрел цены, в Москве байки минимум вдвое дороже чем тут, я "канадец", богатые вы люди, завидую.
    И вопрос про природу. Реки - озёра, можно ли пить эту воду не кипячёной? Есть ли рыба лососёвых-форелевых видов? Каких животных в диком виде, не в загонах вы видели.
    Есть ли в интернете ваши рассказы на русском? Фотки посмотрел.

    Спасибо.

    Вся техника успешно катается.
    Вот фотка из следующей поездки. Половина техники это участники 110 того

    Ничего страшного с ней не происходит, да и покупать каждый раз новую в России довольно накладно :cry

    Воду из Байкала можно пить и не кипяченую, но зачем?
    Расстройство живота в дальнем походе плохой помощник :1drink

    Рыба есть, а уж лососевая она или еще какая не знаю, там довольно много рыбы.

    Крупные животные: медведь, лоси,
    Опасные животные: пьяные Тувинцы, Буряты

    AWESOME report! :freaky

    Mishutka, At the end of this adventure, and thinking of the days of preparing the bike, what would you do differently? (What were the preparations that did not result as expected?)

    :freaky

    This is not the first trip of this nature.
    Most of the shortcomings already converted.

    690 need another system of fuel filtration and robust design of the subframe and carefully inspect the radiator.

    650х need to refine the subframe alter license plate and replace the rear shock.

    Mishutka, Grom...It's very good to see that the world is still very big, in some places.
